In, what is being reported as an “unrelated incident,” a total of five Afghani soldiers that were stationed here in the US were caught at the Canadian border allegedly seeking asylum, at least that’s how the story is being told at present.

Our POTUS, Barack Obama, the golf loving, pacifist, Nobel peace-prize winning, fundraiser-in-chief, is now in quite a quandary.
As of Friday, it became known via the GlobalPost’s reporting (the same newspaper which employed the journalist James Foley who was captured and ultimately beheaded on camera by ISIS) that ISIS has now merged with all of the “moderate” Syrian rebels via a mutually agreed upon truce.
ISIS/IS The Islamic State has just now announced a truce with all “moderate” Syrian Free Rebels and Al Nusra in Iraq, basically all of the moderate muslim fighters ISIS has been fighting against in Syria and in Iraq. Both sides waging civil tribal wars in the name of Islam agreed to stop the infighting and turn their energies to mutually destroy

MO’s Michael Brown Shooting Fallout
US Defense League – At seven minutes and thirty-three seconds (00:07:33) in this press conference Governor Nixon refused to answer who ordered the disproportionate military response to a reported peaceful demonstration in St. Louis county, saying “I think that was yesterday, tonight is tonight, tomorrow is tomorrow”. He also mentions an “operational force” at work several times throughout the press conference, and at one point ignores a question about reported peaceful protestors who had been unlawfully imprisoned for as long as sixteen hours and then released without explanation.
Our question to Governor Nixon –and our US President– is this: Does the Constitution mean so little as to not answer a question pertaining to civilian security and demonstration rights? And on that note, what other, much larger truths are being hidden from the American people?
Our short op-ed on this situation and some questions to ponder regarding the public demonstrations/protests nationally, previous looting, media attention, disproportionate police/state/military intervention, no answers given as to who ordered what appeared/appears to be an invocation of a pseudo Martial Law in Missouri to the, as yet unexplained, death of eighteen-year-old Michael Brown who was black:

Obama didn’t look or sound all too happy as he gave his speech last evening revealing that he had authorized our US Military to provide targeted air support to Iraqis who are fighting against ISIS without any help whatsoever from the international community. To be quite frank and downright colloquial, our US President who normally stays far away from fighting any of our US enemies or truly defending our allies such as Israel, looked pissed off. There’s really no other way to describe his demeanor adequately.
Why Obama waited this long to do anything on behalf of the Iraqi civilians, particularly the Iraqi Christians who are being slaughtered by ISIS, is beyond our imagination. We can only conclude that somehow this situation was placed in his lap by default. Obama picked the international “short straw” and was left to deal with the political mess.
After ten years of US bloodshed in Iraq and Obama’s many timetabled promises that we had conquered al Qaeda and that al Qaeda was “on the run.” …well this doesn’t fit into the POTUS’ declared narrative on Iraq, does it? Similarly Benghazi, Libya and the four dead Americans and the thirty-three still gagged, severely wounded and recovering witnesses did not fit into that neat and tidy box of acceptable facts during the Presidential 2012 race.
Obama says he is a Christian but truly all of his actions defy the label. If you remember a couple of years back when he was invited to speak at Georgetown University, he demanded that all of the Christian crosses, symbols and any name of the Lord Jesus be covered up with black cloth or black painted wood.
As the west coast fights fires and the islands of Hawaii brace for two tropical hurricane sized wind and rainstorms, so must America brace herself for the Islamic Jihad and tyranny that is soon to come our way.
Obama did not appear in any way to be happy about helping out our fellow Christian and non-Muslim men, women and children. He appeared to be sickened to the very core.

July 4, 1776
“We have this day restored the Sovereign to whom alone men ought to be obedient. He reigns in Heaven, and with a propitious eye beholds his subjects assuming that freedom of thought and dignity of self-direction which He bestowed on them. From the rising to the setting sun, may His kingdom come!” – Samuel Adams (after signing Declaration of Independence)
“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands. One nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

On July 4, 1776, we claimed our independence from Britain and A Republic was born. Every day thousands leave their homeland to come to the “land of the free and the home of the brave” so they can begin their American Dream.
When he penned the Declaration of Independence in 1776, Thomas Jefferson had an inkling of the consequences it held for the 13 colonies, who were announcing their intention to break free from the shackles of British rule. What he and the other signers may not have anticipated, however, were the widespread effects the powerful words would also have around the world. The promise was evident in the famous phrases scrawled near the top of the document:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Some Neat Facts About the History of Our Nations Independence:
1.The Declaration of Independence, signed in 1776, was meant to justify a revolt against the British, with a list of charges against the British king

Why is USA meeting with Britain over alleged ongoing pullout of troops in Afghanistan? It probably isn’t. The two military allies haven’t met like this since World War II. The last published public meeting was in the 1940′s. This is significant as it tends towards there being a silent active World War III happening. Right now. Obama just authorized 275 Special Ops only: “boots on the ground in Iraq” even though he said he wouldn’t. If we are going back into active Middle East conflict again it should be to win, not to get our best spec ops troops cornered and killed by ISIS and/or Iran. If you hadn’t heard Secretary of State John Kerry was authorized, by our Islamist sympathizing POTUS, Barack Obama, to consider immediately allying with Iran to fight ISIS in Iraq. Iran, the same militant political Islamist government that has been torturing and holding captive the US Pastor Saeed Abedini solely for his Christian faith.

Enjoy this partial transcript of above video on the Kellyfile:
Senator Chambliss discusses the release of the five most violent terrorists in the world by Barack Obama trading alleged deserter US Army Sgt Bowe Bergdahl for the Taliban’s own Gitmo5, on Fox News The Kelly File with Megyn Kelly:
Senator Chambliss: Well number one they are more dangerous today than ever. The longer they stayed in Guantanamo the more radical they become. But, if you leave them in Guantanamo as the President’s own review commission recommended in 2009, then you don’t have to worry about them. And that’s fine. But the fact of the matter is that these are five of the most dangerous folks in the world.
Investigative reporter and author, James Rosen, spoke on The Mark Levin radio show today with breaking news regarding alleged deserter, US Army Sgt Bowe Bergdahl.
Mr. Rosen has retained access to multiple reports from a reliable intelligence agency. Rosen has personally attained and read at least thirteen reports spanning dates from August 2009 to approximately October 2012. They were provided by a private intel service that the US government uses and other well-known media services uses.
“Running thread about Mullah Sangeen…” ~ Rosen stated the multiple reports contain classified information.
In a Long War Journal’s previous article in October 2013:
Haqqani Network said to name successor to Mullah Sangeen
By all of Sgt. Bowe’s fellow soldier’s accounts. Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl purposefully deserted his own camp five years ago and betrayed his brothers and sisters on the field of war failing to uphold his oath of service in the US Army. There are at least fourteen deaths and multiple casualties with grave injuries of our US Soldiers and our allies said to be associated with the sustained and highly dangerous search of the then missing Sgt. Bergdahl.
New reports allege that Bowe Bergdahl may have been feigning to be a Mujahideen (a loyalist to the call of Islamic Jihad) in order to
For the first time ever, in violation of international norms, Turkey has cut off ALL fresh water supplies to Syria and Iraq from the dams supplied by the Euphrates river. Turkey never signed the Convention on the Law of the Non-Navigational Uses of International Watercourses adopted by the United Nation’s recognized Members. Turkey’s government considers this a private trans-border issue therefore no other countries have jurisdictional authority to interfere.
The Euphrates river (Firat in Turkish) rises from Eastern Anatolia, flows generally southward through southeastern Turkey around Sanliurfa, Adiyaman and Gaziantep provinces, goes across the border into Syria and Iraq passing from Mesopotamia, and empties into the Persian Gulf in Basra after joining with the Tigris river in Shatt al-Arab. Its total lenght is approximately 2.800 km (1.740 mi), out of which 971 km (603 mi) are in Turkey.
Turkey is one of the only three countries in the world (along with China and Burundi) that opposed the Convention on the Law of the Non-Navigational Uses of International Watercourses adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations in 1997.
The lack of constant water pressure may cause the dams to collapse as happens in the case of sink holes in varied geographic locations around the world.
Meanwhile, water supplies in auxiliary reservoirs in al-Khafsa are close to being depleted and the reservoirs are expected to run out of water completely by tonight or tomorrow morning at the latest. This threatens to leave seven million Syrians without access to water. Also, Tishrin Dam stopped receiving any water which blocked its electricity generating turbines, decreasing the power supply in Aleppo and its countryside, further intensifying the already severe imbalance in the power supply.
In Raqqa, the northern side of Lake Assad is today completely out of service. Two million Syrians living in the region covering the villages of Little Swaydiya to the east until al-Jarniya to the west could lose their drinking water supply. “Losing water supplies in the dam means that the silt in the lake will dry off which would pressure its structure, subjecting it to fissures and eventually total collapse,” Al-Akhbar sources warned, adding “it is crucial to shut down the dam to stop its collapse.”
What does this mean for troops still stationed in Iraq? Do we even have US troops still stationed in Iraq? We may indeed have US Troops back in Iraq by urgent request of the Iraqi government itself. The AP reported that 20 troops were killed on May 11th, 2014 in Baghdad yet did not specify which troops. But didn’t the Obama administration officially pull out all US Troops from Iraq in 2011? Well, yes…but
According to ForeignPolicy.com, the United States government has sold over $14,000,000,000.00 (Fourteen Billion Dollars) worth of high tech heavy duty weaponry and planes to Iraq including “Apache attack helicopters, M1A1 tanks, F-16 fighter jets, Hellfire missiles, small arms, and a raft of small aircraft, some of which provide surveillance capabilities.”
In exchange, Iraq was supposed to be looking at the larger international implications of its maneuvers.
Previously all US military were expunged from Iraq with fanfare as if we were becoming unwanted ‘occupiers.’ Yet now, in the utmost of irony, Iraq is pleading with US Administration to lend it more support, particularly with reconnaissance and weaponized drones and even feet on the ground from our military. Iraq had stated all along that we had a common enemy, al Qaeda.
Based upon the recent developments of Obama’s incomprehensible actions of trading five top, highly trained enemy Islamic Jihadists from Gitmo for one US Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl who may have been allegedly turned into an Islamist himself (and reportedly has a father who has sympathetic ties to Afghanistan and Islamic goals and ideals which are themselves at enmity with our US Government), it would not be clear to an outsider to think that we are at war with al Qaeda. Sgt Bowe Bergdahl’s own platoon now state for the record that he planned on walking from Afghanistan to India with compass in hand. Bergdahl was, in their firm opinion, a deserter. And six fellow heroic soldiers in the 1st Battalion, 501st Parachute Infantry Regiment died attempting to find Bowe after his capture by the Taliban.
Their names are listed in order to remember and honor their utmost sacrifice for laying down their lives to defend Freedom for our Republic of The United States of America:
It is important to name all these names. For the veterans of the units that lost these men, Bergdahl’s capture and the subsequent hunt for him will forever tie to their memories, and to a time in their lives that will define them as people. He has finally returned. Those men will never have the opportunity. ~ Nathan Bradley Bethea
